"This film was too long.It lost me somewhere in the middle.It is an elegaic,autumnal,funereal western about a criminal psychopath who becomes a legend in his own lifetime,Jesse James,played with languorous ease by Brad Pitt.This film is not about action, it is a psychodrama about a fan who turns critic to a celebrity he worships.The cinematography by Deakin depicts beautifully the wide open plains of Missouri.Robert Ford is ably played by Casey Affleck who worms his way past Frank James’s scornful put down into the bosom of a tired 34 year old Jesse James.The minor characters are acted and depicted well.I couldn’t take too well to the voiceover which is often the death-knell to a good film. The film recalled in it’s sepia tones, Days of Heaven and McCabb & Mrs. Miller.The modern western has turned into a heritage of reconstruction and recreation.We know all along the scenario and how it will play out:it’s in the title and Jesse James seems to nurture and play with the viper at his bosom.It is not strictly an assassination as he offers his uncritical back to his would-be killer.The real problem is that films based on works of literature do not translate to the screen(cf. Atonement); seeing a film is not like reading a book as word is imagination not vision."
